around our other ally israel, and that instability continues to grow. one of the things that was helpful from egypt while president mubarak was in charge, at least there was some effort to restrict the transfer of rockets into the gaza strip. so there were some tunnels that would be found, the tunnels had to be kept small so they were able to get smaller rockets into gaza. but now that there's a new regime, apparently the bigger rockets are getting in to gaza and they pose more and more of a threat as they continue to be fired into israel. the action is not only the fall of an ally, president mubarak, but the assistance in bringing to power in egypt the muslim brotherhood. they want to see israel gone and they would also not mind seing the united states gone. it's important when formulating foreign policy that the united states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater t

[ boom noise ] >> that was a target israeli strike on media centers in gaza. we're live in gaza. just after midnight there right now. ben, thanks for joining us. it is said they have killed one of israel's leading experts. >> israeli defense forces are claiming they killed in that strike which left 11 people dead, including women and children, that they killed a man who they say is one of the senior commanders of hamas' rocket unit. however, we have been speaking to our sources here. we spoke to people in the neighborhood, and frankly they've never heard of this man. so it's not altogether clear whether this man had anything to do with or who he is, even, at all. so it's all rather confusing at the moment. what does seem to be clear is that israel is starting to focus on after-effects of jabadi, who is the leader of hamas' military wing, it seems they are focusing on his subordinates throughout the gaza strip. another senior commander in hamas' mili

, israel. would you say in israel romney would be preferred to obama? >> it's not that simple. i think they're just as divided. it's absolutely true that the israeli right, i would say large chunk of the center fear president obama and therefore would support romney not because of enthusiasm but because of the very bad relationship between the israeli right and the israeli right-winged government and the obama administration. but i think the israeli center left now identifies with obama and would like to see an obama victory and actually that will influence the election campaign in israel. we have several players who are waiting to see the result of the american elections and therefore the israeli center left and definitely left actually supports obama, which was not the case when obama began his tenure because at the time, really most of israel had reservations about him. i would say he became much more popular with the left and left of center where the right sees him in almost in demonic terms. >> you have multiple identities. you're an arab-israeli. the second, you're a news anchor in it

-determination of israelis and palestinians. as you know, every american president since lyndon johnson tried to stop israel from building settlements on the west bank because they understood those settlements threatened to fore close the possibility of a two-state solution. some presidents pushed hard; some not very hard. at camp david, jimmy carter believed he received assurances that building would stop and self-determination and would commence, but settlement building did not stop and carter and the egyptians for different reasons did not make too much of a fuss. ronald reagan called for a settlement freeze without making a big issue of it. george hw bush made an issue of it paying a steep political price which may have cost him re-election. bill clinton wanted a viable state, and he found settlement building cometted whether israel was headed by labor, and, indeed, accelerated throughout the 1990s. barack obama made a settlement freeze that jumping off point for his peace efforts, and he was smacked down decisively by benjamin netanyahu. the reason is obvious. israel, no matter what coalition was in ch

-fire intensifies, israel's foreign minister says he sought a long term arrangement arguing any discussion must begin with gaza agreeing to stop all fire into israel. are we going to see more of a premium put into global risk trades now, as well? >> the oil price is the real issue here and that is the factor that could make or break global growth. we've seen a fairly reasonable decline over the past you few months in response to the slower global growth story. if you start increasing the oil price because of tensions in the middle east, and the moves we've seen so far are not substantial, but if we start getting towards $95, $100 a barrel, that starts to put even more economic headwind in you like in the way of the world and that would be a very bad thing. i think it's likely to remain a relatively localized conflict. the risk is if it broadens out further, we still have the issue of iran and what would happen there. something happening there could see the oil price spike to 140, 150. >> i hear what you're saying it potentially remaining ale loized issue in israel, but at the same time, i was s
retaliated with rockets. israel's targets have included a hamas-affiliated bank in gaza. palestinian fighters have fired up to 300 rockets a day at israel over the past week. the number released tuesday is lower. the conflict has killed 111 palestinians and three israelis. egypt has been mediating cease-fire talks between hamas and israel. israeli negotiators have set a condition that hamas stop firing rockets in the long term. hamas representatives want israel to end its economic blockade of gaza. the u.n. security council has still not agreed on a statement proposed by the arab league calling on both sides for an immediate cease-fire. u.s. ambassador susan rice spoke after a closed-door meeting, saying the security council must not do anything that could undermine egypt's mediation efforts. russian ambassador vitaly churkin offered a veiled criticism of the united states. >> some members -- one member of the security council, i'm sure you can guess which, indicated sort of quite transparently that they will not be prepared to go along with any reaction of the security council. >> u.n. secre
east. elections are coming up in israel, in jordan, in egypt, iran and elsewhere. we're seeing in front of our eyes more violent change happening in syria. the reverberations of which are being felt on everyone of that country's borders. elsewhere from beirut to bahrain domestic politics is at a low boil ready to burst out in a way that can affect our interests in very fundamental ways. there are two problems at the far ends of the threat spectrum. the iran nuclear challenge on the one hand and the spread of al qaeda and affiliated terrorism on the other that will continue to dominate and lest we forget within a year of taking office both presidents obama and bush, his predecessor, were faced with previously unforeseen events that fundamentally challenged their middle east policies. 9/11 for president bush and the arab spring for president obama. so there's a lot on the agenda. today we're going to take a early look at what will be and what should be the foreign policy of a second obama administration in the middle east. now we at the washington institute, for us this is just the beginn
-- suppose israel were to attack iranian nuclear facilities and iran were to retaliate, and iran and israel would find themselves at war. should the united states intervene on israel's side militarily? and 59 percent said no. that's the same finding we had in 2010, so it's a pretty stable opinion. and given the importance of the threat that they perceive from the iranian program and the very strong relationship between the united states and israel, it's not as surprising. it's certainly a sobering finding. on arab spring, they're deeply uncertain, like many experts on the middle east, about where the so-called arab spring is going. whatever season is in the arab world now, so they're waiting to see. but in that environment, opposition to economic assistance, in particular to egypt has declined rather sharply over the last two years. we don't have it on this graph, but the same pattern only more so with respect to economic assistance to pakistan and ghanistan. support for economic assistance to israel and military assistance to israel remains pretty stable. and finally let me turn to asia. w
